Community Engaged Department Institute and Grant Program

The Center for Community-­Based Learning announces the availability of funds for academic departments to develop, enhance, or expand community-­based learning opportunities in their departmental curricula. The intent of this program is to increase the adoption and integration of Community-­Based Transformational Learning (CBTL) instructional practices in academic programs by developing intentional and coherent curricular pathways, the inclusion of evidence-based practices.


The goals of the Community Engaged Department Grant include:

  • Providing academic departments with time and resources to assess their current community-­‐based  learning practices an engagement capacities,
  • Determining possible CBTL pathways in their curricula,
  • Developing and implement an operational plan to enhance CBTL and the adoption of CBTL in the department,
  • Implementing evidence-­‐based practices for continuous improvement,
  • Providing documentation to assess the QEP’s impact on student learning and/or the environment supporting student learning.
